Mr. Henry Graw: orphaned at four, never knew his real name, went to Alaska and struck it rich. Lost all that money in Seattle. Then he married, and then she died.
So he came to Huntington Beach and secured a good job with a company that quickly folded and as such didn’t pay him. He found a less-good job, but at least it paid, until a pipe fell and crushed his hand. So he got good and drunk to deal with the pain in his soul (and hand) and promptly landed in the hoosegow.
After relating this saga, acting City Recorder of Huntington Beach, Andrew Wilson, elected to release Graw on probation; Graw stated to the court that he is leaving for Alaska as soon as possible.
